Galaxy S8, S8+: Samsung launches new flagship phones in India

Kuo adds that he believes the Note 8's potential dual camera will be superior to the one found on the iPhone 7 Plus, and could match the one that Apple is expected to fit to the iPhone 8 with OLED display due out later this year. Both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ are powered by an Exynos processor, along with 4GB of RAM. If you wish to watch the live streaming of Galaxy S8 event, you will have to visit the Samsung India website (http://www.samsung.com/in/microsite/galaxy-s8-webcast/#). From the design point of view, there are a few changes such as fingerprint sensor has moved to the rear whereas the front has an on-screen home button sorts with haptic technology. That's the same chipset as the Samsung Galaxy S8 has in many regions, though like the S8 we wouldn't be surprised if some countries get a Snapdragon 835 instead. The company also offered a free wireless charging case for those who pre-order the phone. In the United States, the Galaxy S8 is powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor. These devices also feature 64GB of internal memory which can be further expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card slot. Both the devices have a 12 MP camera at the back with a f/1.7 aperture.

It's no secret that Android, Google's homegrown operating system for most portable smart devices out there, is becoming better and better with each new variant. However they note that things like tough adhesive especially in the battery area and a glued on rear panel makes it quite hard to replace certain parts of the phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 lineup comes as a major upgrade over the previous Galaxy S7 series and also borrows some elements from the Galaxy Note 7, which never launched in India. We might not know the truth for a while though, as the Galaxy Note 8 probably won't land until autumn.
